Canadian company seeks to ship oil sands crude through trans-Alaska pipeline

first_imgBusiness | Energy & Mining | Interior | Nation & World | TransportationCanadian company seeks to ship oil sands crude through trans-Alaska pipelineMarch 24, 2016 by Robert Hannon, KUAC – Fairbanks Share:The trans-Alaska pipeline on Aug. 6, 2005. (Creative Commons photo by Luca Galuzzi)A Canadian company is looking into the feasibility of building a railroad to Alaska to link with the trans-Alaska pipeline. The rail line would ferry Canadian oil sands to markets in Asia. The company has been pursuing the project for years.Matt Vickers admits he’s touted the idea of shipping oil sands from Alberta to Alaska by rail for a long time.Vickers is CEO of G Seven Generations, Ltd., a Canadian company. He hopes to load more than a million barrels a day from Fort McMurray, Alberta onto a specially built rail line to Delta Junction. From there it would be treated to enter the trans-Alaska pipeline to Valdez.Vickers said the $35 million project got new life when the Alberta government funded a preliminary study for almost $2 million.“A.E. Can, our engineering firm, were able to look at allowing our rail to be a class A rail along the 2,400 kilometer, or 1,600 mile, route,” Vickers said.He said he’s spent much of the last six years getting buy-in from Canadian First Peoples and Alaska Natives impacted by the proposal.  If all goes to plan, Vickers said, crude from Canadian oil sands could be moving down to Valdez by 2020.Share this story:last_img read more

In concert hall or on hike, hermit thrush sings for Sitkans

first_imgArts & Culture | Southeast | WildlifeIn concert hall or on hike, hermit thrush sings for SitkansJune 27, 2018 by Katherine Rose, KCAW-Sitka Share:(Photo courtesy Jnthnjng/Wikimedia Commons)In summertime, the Sitka Summer Music Festival brings classical musicians from around the world to Southeast Alaska. But the warmer temperatures also bring another musical migration — that of the hermit thrush.On one evening music and science converged in a concert featuring the talents of two species.Audio Player Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Nevada City, California-based ornithologist Allison Nelson runs a small nonprofit that bands and monitors birds in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.Her specialty — the hermit thrush — is a major migratory songbirds of the Pacific Northwest.It’s iconic song fills the forests of Southeast Alaska this time of year.“To walk through the woods, when you’re surrounded by hermit thrushes and other similar species where they’re singing at dusk or dawn is just such an amazing, musical, incredibly moving experience.” Nelson said.The charismatic hermit thrushes are a perfect introductory bird for birder newbies, Nelson said.“So many people consider the hermit thrush their favorite bird song,” she said. “I think they can be a good tool to help people understand birds, what birds face, the conservation challenges.”This is Nelson’s third summer in Sitka studying hermit thrushes.She’s here this year for a month as a part of the Scientist in Residency Fellowship with Sitka Sound Science Center, banding and studying the bird that migrates to Southeast to breed.Though the hermit thrush is abundant, Nelson said species similar to it are in sharp decline.“The Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center estimates that cats kill about 1.7 to 3.4 billion birds a year in North America alone,” she says. “You say that number to people and they’re like ‘I didn’t even know there were that many birds on the planet.”So she partnered with musicians here for the Sitka Summer Music Festival to spend an evening talking with Sitkans about the special bird, and introduce them to a rarely performed composition by American composer Amy Beach, inspired by the hermit thrush.“The hermit thrush has this sort of long introductory note in their song, doooo, doodle-oodle loo,” Nelson said, doing a brief impression of the bird. “In some of the composition there was that pattern of the long introductory note followed by the flourish.”With Susan Reed on piano and Louna Dekker Vargas on flute, an audience of about 30 in Stevenson Hall were transported by the ethereal tune.But as Allison discovered a week ago, even the bird she knows so well can still surprise her and transport her — not with song, but with silence.She was on Galankin Island looking for color-banded birds when she ran into a hermit thrush, who was particularly interested in the bird song she was playing.“He stood straight, made himself look taller. He fluffed out his breast feathers so he looked twice as tall and twice as fluffy.”He began to sing, in a surprising way.“They will sing the normal song they would sing as any time, but almost as if they whisper it,” Nelson said. “It almost sounds like the bird is in your pocket, being muffled. I could see him right in front of me singing this little quiet song. And at some points he had his bill open. He was moving his chest like he was singing, but I couldn’t hear anything,” she said.When something this exciting happens, Nelson is thankful for the opportunity to share it with other science-focused Sitkans like naturalists Richard Nelson and Matt Goff,and University of Alaska Southeast biology teacher Kitty Labounty, and compare notes.“We go on and on, like why did this bird do this? I wonder if the birds on the other island are doing this? Why are they responding to this call and not that call. You get together with folks like this and ponder these questions and answers,” Nelson said, laughing. “We love to try to solve all the world’s mysteries … over coffee cake.”Through song or study, over cake or quietly listening to chamber music, in Sitka it’s not always clear where the science ends and the art begins.Share this story:last_img read more

Son of Purged Aide Escapes Forced Repatriation to NK

first_img News News News By Daily NK – 2014.11.20 10:46am RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR North Korea tries to accelerate building of walls and fences along border with China SHARE AvatarDaily NKQuestions or comments about this article? Contact us at [email protected] center_img News There are signs that North Korea is running into serious difficulties with its corn harvest A North Korean student attending universityin Paris has reportedly been in hiding for over two weeks after escaping a forced repatriation byPyongyang’s security officials en route to the airport.The student, surnamed Han, is known to be theson of one of Jang Song Taek’s aides, who was purgedalong with the former top official. This move seems to be part of the protracted purges being carried out since late last year in North Korea.North Korean state security officials fromone of Pyongyang’s embassies based in Europe enteredthe student’s home, confiscated his passport and mobilephone, and attempted to drag him to the airport to send him back to North Korea, according tolocal Korean sources.The student, who was studying architecturein France–well aware of his father having been executed and his families andrelatives being sent off to political prison camps–succeeded in escaping onhis way to the airport.French police and officials from the school in which Han is enrolled have been trying to track him down.France and North Korea have not establisheddiplomatic ties; however, Paris has allowed Pyongyang to open a mission in itscountry and engages in exchanges with the country, although limited. In 2011, theFrench government invited ten North Korean students [all thought to be children of high-ranking officials], including Han, to study atits two most renowned architecture schools, Ecole Nationale Superieure d’Architecture de Paris-La Villette and L’ecole d’architectureBelleville. If the alleged forced repatriation turns out to be true, the issue is expected to become a source of diplomatic bickering between the two countries. The North’s security officials, who tried to escort the student back home, areknown to have come from a third country bordering with France–potentially creating a source of tension between that state and Pyongyang.

SEC, FINRA issue risk alert on broker dealer branch office inspections

Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Pandemic turns banks into preppers Elevated risks are here to stay: ESMA The risk of a sudden, severe correction remains: ESMA U.S. securities regulators have issued a risk alert and a regulatory notice on broker-dealer branch inspections, which offers guidance to securities firms on how to carry out these inspections to protect both clients, and their own interests. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s Office of Compliance Inspections and Examinations and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority Wednesday issued the notices providing guidance on branch inspections, which they note is a critical component of a comprehensive risk management program that can help protect investors and brokerage firms. The notice indicates that the regulators’ examination staff have observed that firms that execute this process well typically: tailor the focus of branch exams to the business conducted in that branch and assess the risks specific to that business; schedule the frequency and intensity of exams based on underlying risk, rather than on an arbitrary cycle, but examine branch offices at least annually; engage in a significant percentage of unannounced exams, selected through a combination of risk based analysis and random selection; deploy sufficiently senior branch office examiners who understand the business and have the gravitas to challenge assumptions; and, design procedures to avoid conflicts of interest by examiners that may serve to undermine complete and effective inspection. Firms that don’t do a good job and display significant deficiencies in the integrity of their overall branch inspection process, typically: utilize generic examination procedures for all branch offices; utilize unexperienced branch office examiners; perform inspections in a ‘check the box’ fashion; devote minimal time to each exam; fail to follow their firm’s own policies by not inspecting branch offices as required, announcing exams that were supposed to be unannounced, or failing to generate a written inspection report; failing to have adequate policies; and, lacking heightened supervision of individuals with disciplinary histories. “An effective risk based branch office inspection program is an important component of a broker-dealer’s supervisory system and, when constructed and implemented reasonably, it can better protect investors and the firm’s own interests,” said Stephen Luparello, vice chairman of FINRA. “FINRA encourages broker-dealers to review this guidance and consider enhancements to their own branch office inspection programs.” The SEC indicates that this is the second in a continuing series of risk alerts that its national examination staff expects to issue, alerting senior management, risk management, and compliance managers in the securities industry to significant risks they uncover, so that industry members can more effectively address those risks.

FCA slaps Barclays over poor treatment of struggling clients

first_img Regulators must avert looming irrelevance: IAP Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Related news Mouth mechanic turned market manipulator Keywords Enforcement,  Securities regulations,  Regulation,  Banking industryCompanies Financial Conduct Authority James Langton gavel 123RF The U.K.’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has fined financial giant Barclays plc £26 million for treating customers poorly when they ran into financial difficulties.In addition to the regulatory penalty, the firm has paid more than £273 million in redress, to 1.53 million customers, the FCA said. Regulators issue new reporting guidance on systems outages Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Among other things, the FCA said that the bank didn’t properly deal with customers that fell behind on their bills. The bank failed to understand their situation and provide viable payment solutions.Instead, Barclays offered clients unaffordable, or unsustainable, arrangements, the regulator said.The FCA noted that Barclays identified some of these issues back in 2014, but didn’t fix them “due to systems and controls failings.”Now, the bank has resolved these failings and provided customers with redress.Barclays also settled the FCA’s case against it, qualifying for a 30% discount on its penalty, which would otherwise have been £37.2 million.The regulator noted that the conduct in question predates the widespread economic distress inflicted by the Covid-19 outbreak. It added that the obligation to treat customers fairly is particularly important, given the financial stress facing many households due to the pandemic.“The fair and appropriate treatment of customers experiencing financial difficulty remains a focus for the FCA and the FCA is working to ensure that firms raise their standards in this area,” the regulator said.“Firms should ensure there is appropriate investment in their staff who work in collections and recoveries, including in training and effective management information, to allow firms to monitor customer outcomes and take appropriate action where needed,” the FCA said.last_img read more

PM Boris Johnson Must Include Air Transport in UK Economic Restart Plans

first_imgPM Boris Johnson Must Include Air Transport in UK Economic Restart Plans The International Air Transport Association (IATA) called on the UK government to include a vision for lifting border restrictions and restarting air transport in its recovery plans for the UK economy, due to be outlined on 22 February by Prime Minister Boris Johnson.The COVID-19 shutdown of the UK economy has resulted in the biggest one-year decline in GDP since 1709. Air passenger numbers fell by 76% in 2020. London lost its position as the world’s most connected city. Around 860,000 aviation, travel and tourism jobs were lost or sustained only due to government furlough schemes. If current border restrictions remain in place, there is no prospect of a recovery in air transport and these negative impacts will continue, damaging the UK economy for a generation or more.Prior to COVID-19, the UK aviation industry supported around 960,000 jobs and GBP 57 billion in GDP (direct, indirect or induced impacts). A further 465,000 jobs were supported through aviation-related travel and tourism. It is therefore vital that the air transport industry is included in the government’s plan for rolling back lockdown restrictions.“We recognize that the government has a difficult balancing act between unlocking the economy and safeguarding public health. We are not demanding a date for border restrictions to be lifted. But Prime Minister Johnson must set out a vision for how international travel can and will be restarted as the pandemic ends. That vision would include explaining how a phased reduction of restrictions would work, and the levels to which infections or hospitalizations would need to fall to trigger those reductions. With this science-based approach locked in, the industry and the public will have the certainty to plan for take-off,” said Rafael Schvartzman, IATA’s Regional Vice President for Europe. /Public Release.
